Providing every child in Knoxville with the opportunity to lead a full life
Emerald Youth Foundation works with churches and faith-based organizations throughout Knoxville, Tennessee to engage young people through faith, learning and health.
Its programming is structured by neighborhood, ensuring every child in Knoxville has equal access to their urban youth ministry, calling and career ministry and sports programming.
In December 2019, we proudly unveiled the Haslam-Sansom Emerald Youth Foundation complex in the Lonsdale neighborhood.
This 30,000-square-foot complex includes sports fields, praise music rehearsal rooms, a café, weight room, full-service health clinic, praise music rehearsal rooms, a teen college and career center, a gymnasium and more. Emerald Youth Foundation runs its neighborhood youth programming in the facility, but it is also available for all community members to utilize.
We believe deeply in the work Emerald Youth Foundation is doing for young people and their families throughout Knoxville and are proud to support their efforts.
